    Merwin???? No, I met Argonaut at Woodhead park on the Snake. Yeah, that's 2.5hrs for sure. There are a # of camping parks on the Snake, including a for real RV park near Huntington. Wallowa is much harder since the state park there is typically booked a year in advance. There used to be an RV park near Joseph but I'm not sure anymore. Your welcome to camp in my driveway, but I'm about 1.5hrs from Wallowa Lake.

    No, I meant I'm driving almost two and a half hours down to Merwin Lake from my house about every 2 weeks & looking for RV place there around Woodland, Wa.:D

    I'd love to fish Wallowa one day.;)

    Ah! ... My vision is bad and your punctuation sucks. :p;) I missed that little you I change up thing there. Sorry!

    You'd like Wallowa lake. It's clear and cold, has trees and private homes on one side, the moraine on the other, and the high mountains at the head end. The river coming in is right out of the high lakes area where the snow never goes away. There's a tram that goes up to the ridge, where you can see all the way over to the breaks of the Snake River. It's a deep lake, some 200 feet. Gives some scuba divers their deep water practice. There are some big Mackinaw down there and our very own Nessie. :):):)

    We are headed to Lost Creek Lake on the Rogue for a long weekend of trolling for trout. I don't think there are any Kokannee but I've hooked into some nice one-footers there. We've been there enough, we know where to go when we want meat on board. :D
